NTC has successfully connected the world of qualitative and quantitative data to glean insights, plan media and drive marketing performance for multicultural audiences. We’ve taken future state technology and developed a working model that can quickly derive and understand “the why” behind “the who”. We’re an industry leader at creating meaning in a space where marketing lacks meaning, that space is multicultural. We bridge the gap between empathy (feeling) and intention (thought) to create a new state of being and personal reality in the mind of the consumer so that genuine and positive business outcomes happen.
